Greg Schueneman

Supervisory Research Materials Engineer

USDA Forest Service

Greg joined the Forest Product Lab in November of 2009 as project leader of RWU 4707 Performance Enhanced Biopolymers. This unit focuses on research and development of advanced structures, composites, and nanotechechnology. Prior to joining FPL he had 10 years of industrial experience working with Loctite, Henkel, Fairchild Semiconductor, and Mapei. During this time he gained experience with the materials science and development of nanocomposites, structural adhesives, sealants, semiconductor packaging materials and processes, and emulsion based adhesives. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Florida and a PhD in Polymer Science and Engineering from University of Massachusetts at Amherst. His primary research goals are directed at overcoming the fundamental challenges toward control and tailoring of lignocellulosic nanomaterials and the performance and durability of the composites derived from them. The long term goal of this research is to move lignocellulosic composites up the food chain of more demanding applications. Additional research interests are the durability and performance of materials used in conjunction with lignocellulosic materials. Greg seeks to interact with a broad and diverse group of industrial, government and academic colleagues for collaborative research, education, and dissemination of ideas and findings.
